How to Get the New Gmail Minimal Look?

Google has just started rolling out the new minimal look for everyone?

If you are like me and don’t see it yet, here is how you can enable it right now.

  • Just go to Mail Settings
  • Go to Themes tab
  • Enable Preview or Preview (Dense)

Other than the new minimal look, Google has also moved the ad down and has some scrolling elements changed. For. eg. the action bar with labels, archive, delete, etc are fixed and easy to access no matter how long your email thread is.

This has to be one of the biggest Gmail re-designs ever and a different approach from the traditional blue themes we are used to.

If you are sharp eyed, you may also have noticed changes in the individual mail panels. Google has now added easy to access contact details with those in the email thread. This idea seems to be heavily borrowed from the Gmail add-on Rapportive I reviewed here.


Go get your new Gmail look right now. Let me know in the comments about what you think of it. I like it!

I am sure there will be a bunch of Gmail Greasemonkey scripts coming out tweaking this new look and feel.
